Artist have always intervened in a landscape through installation or performance like Richard Long or Zander Olsen , or intervened over photographs or paintings like Gerghard Richter or Arnulf Rainer.
One day I decided to take the yellow line of the road - this metaphoric abstraction of life path in another series into the sky, for the sky is the limit.
I realised then, as I was learning to skydive for the shot that there are no conceptual fine art photographs done in the sky that I could find.
I decided to turn it into a playground for experimentation.
It is also redefining our perception of the landscape, beyond the bird eye view. I have spent hours as a kid turning the pages of Yann Arthus Bertrand aerial images marvelling at the abstraction and the similarity they had with biology, I wanted to experience it, physically.
There is also the notion of skewed time and space - for the 30 seconds I have to make the shots - I do go from 4000 to 1000 meters but the landscape doesnt change like it does when hiking. It is a backdrop, the same way a photograph or painting or drawing I would intervene on would be.
